    2-3 piece unfinished Swamp Ash bodies from GFS come in over 200 because of stupid expensive shipping costs they charge. And anything from Warmoth (premium quality IMO) will put you into $400 range (exchange rate, gst, shipping).

    Even after living here 22 years, it still sh*ts me that guitar hardware, timber and gear are still so expensive here.
    Admittedly, prices have improved since 1997.
    The 60s & early 70s were much worse for new Fenders, but the ones we lust after today with massive price tags were just old guitars in pawn shops & music stores and cheap as chips.
